    Lunch Suggestion?

    Any suggestions for a nice spot for lunch----a business lunch? So...... Good food ( clients are into good food), good atmosphere, and not too loud. Mid-town East location would be ideal! I found this spot on Yelp, but can't get over the "replica artworks of Renaissance Artists" from the home page description .....

    suggestions very much appreciated!!!!!:)

    Thank you!!! All look great, and Modern at MOMA is absolutely perfect, considering our topic of lunch discussion planned. Perfect. Reservations are made!

    The Modern at MOMA is one of our absolute favorites for lunch in the city. Excellent food and service in a spectacular setting. You and your clients will love it!

    You may want to consider Serafina (there are a few locations in Manhattan...my favorite is 79th and Madison Ave) for pizza and salads and other Italian dishes.

    Mike, I have seen large groups sitting together, although I don't know about 20 people.
    Perhaps you can call them to see if they can seat 20 together:

    My pleasure!

    Serafina, on 79th Street, is up a flight of stairs.
    They also have another room above that.
    Perhaps that is where they accommodate the larger parties.

    Thanks! I had actually considered it, but we don't have time to cab downtown and then back uptown..So far, I have Eleven Madison Park for dinner Wednesday, The Modern at MOMA for lunch on Thursday, and then dinner at my hotel Thurs. evening (not really known for the food, so much as a really cool roof bar/lounge, and the small plates menu looks great!). What I don't have planned is lunch on Friday. We will be UES around 58th & 3rd. Probably grab a sandwich or something---know of any great delis or cafes around there?---somewhere we don't need a rez, since I can't gauge when we will be through working for the day....

    Great, thanks JEK---another winner! I did make a reservation for lunch Friday, and may modify accordingly. Asian actually sounds perfect. Then I can cab straight down to Penn Station from there---easier than cabbing cross-town on a Friday afternoon!
